Med Waiver Group Homes

We offer four (4) group homes for individuals aged 18+ who have been diagnosed with a developmental disability. Located in family neighborhoods in the Plantation and Fort Lauderdale area, each of these residences is home to six (6) individuals. Placement is based on similar disabilities and ages. Staff provide skilled nursing support, nutrition, and innovative therapy services to foster independence and daily living skills. Residents are encouraged to participate in local neighborhood activities to promote healthier outcomes and community inclusion.  

 

Group Homes are individually tailored to meet the specific needs of the residents and consist of both single and double bedrooms. Residents are supported 24-7 by Resident Training Coordinators who provide supervision and assist with opportunities to actively participate in acquiring, improving, and maintaining skills related to activities of daily living, alongside social and adaptive skills that enable individuals to fully benefit from community living.

 

Each resident is intimately involved in their Person-Centered Planning process to ensure their individual wants and needs are met with a focus on self-determination and independence.   

 

Optimal health and wellness is provided with 24-7 support from nutrition and nursing staff.

 

Behavior Analysis services are provided to residents who meet APD criteria. Funding is received through APD iBudget and potential applicants must receive Medicaid Waiver Services.
